Kelly,

Thanks for hanging in there. I was so frustrated with how slow the board was loading I never got back to finish my day. I am working on the rest of the parade right now, so hope to have that up in no time.

Finally I am going to finish the Jingle Jungle Parade.







As I mentioned earlier, I have a problem eating some foods. So, as we are standing here watching the wonderful floats and characters come by, I can feel IT!!!! IT, is that feeling when I am going to be sick. I cannot believe I made it this far into the parade and NOW I am going to be sick. This is the last thing we saw and I knew it was almost over, and wanted so desperately to watch the rest, but my body would not let me.

Without giving too much info, a quick stop by the restroom and I am feeling SO much better. Needless to say, I know better than to enjoy the pretzel, but it was so yummy, I had to pay the price. It was time to make a mad dash out of AK as the parade would be ending any minute and every body else will come out. On our way out of the park though, we did see something that I HAD to stop off to see!!!


Unfortunately, there was no photopass photographer, so the cm that was with Mickey offered to take our photos (she just about chopped of DH head though).



Up next a visit to Animal Kingdom Lodge.

After we left Mickey at Animal Kingdom, it was time to head back to All Star, but on the way out, I suggested we drive by Animal Kingdom Lodge as we have NEVER been there at all. I’ve heard so much about it. (Our son and DIL stayed there on their honeymoon). Of course as we entered the hotel, what do we see but another amazing Christmas tree.


It is dark in there (which I was already aware of) so my photos weren’t the greatest. We stumbled across this odd item, not sure what it is, but it was neat looking.

We walked out the back to see the animals on the savannah. Oh, my goodness it was so nice. I could be very comfortable sitting here sipping my coffee watching the animals in the morning.












Up next, a trip to the Boardwalk and Dinner at ESPN.

I love that parade. (Okay, I love them all.) It was especially cute and colorful with all the Christmas stuff, too. The boys and I saw it in November, but the girls and I didn't see it in December. They were already doing the Christmas version in Nov., though, so I was happy.

The first day of our March trip, we have AK planned for the first half of the day, so we'll be seeing the normal version then. Our friend that is going with us has never been to Animal Kingdom, so we're excited about showing it all to her.

Thanks for sharing the good pictures.

Great pictures! I can't believe how sharp your pictures are. I would also love to enjoy my coffee in the morning while watching the animals but it probably won't happen for a long time. Especially since I don't drink coffee. I guess if the opportunity ever came up I could drink some O.J. Emily is sure that we should stay there some time. I don't think she quite gets the price difference between there and one of the All stars. I am hoping that in September (if there is free dining) we can go there to eat at Boma and then look around.

Sorry you weren't feeling well during the parade. Sometimes some things are just too yummy and you have to enjoy it even if there is a price.

Great update!

MeMom,
I love all of the parades and can't wait to go back to see ones that I missed this trip. I can never get enough. I'm still scrapping this trip and reliving it through all the pics. Have a great time on your upcoming trip.

Kelly,

I love my pictures this time. I bought my camera back in May knowing we were going to be going to Disney more than once this year (due to dd doing the cp). I didn't make out as good with my August shots, but learned more from it and LOVED it for my last trip.

Yea, the kids never got the fact that it's a LOT more to stay at some other places and we've only done values (but my DS & DIL did do AK for their honeymoon/cruise). Still hoping that this year, somehow we'll get to stay at a deluxe.

Snowbell,

Thanks for joining. I've been following along with your report and can't wait to hear about the dream you won!!!

OT - Our pug Abbey

Well, I haven't posted in a few days (like normal, I know) but this time, I've been a bit overwhelmed. On Saturday, our pug Abbey was diagnosed with diabetes (very sudden onset) and we have had to learn how to give her the insulin shots twice a day and moniter her sugar. So, I've been researching canine diabetes instead of playing on the dis boards. I hope to catch back up this weekend.

I am so sorry to hear about your pug Abbey. I hope it is all going well for you and her with the shots and the monitoring. It's hard when a pet is ill. Our pets can be like our children. I will say a prayer for her and for you guys too.

Kelly,

Thanks so much. We are adjusting. She really does not mind her shots, so that makes it a LOT easier. I never knew there was so much info out there on this though. I am overwhelmed with all of it, but getting an education in the meantime. I hope to post an update by this weekend. Thanks for your patience and your prayers.

I am sorry to hear about your pup. With the shots he should be ok though. My friends dog got diagnosed a couple years back and he is doing great!
